1) Start 22 UP 27 SSTS UP 29
2) To avoid MUG (257)eg789 => SIS[(1)g79,(6)g78] =>
(1)g79 = (6)g78 - h8 = h3 - c3* = [NP(6*1)cf6 = HP(6*1)cg7] => g6<>1; UP 33; NT(478)ace4
3) To avoid UR(48)ce46 => (4*8*)a6 = NP(8*7)a59 => a4<>7;UP 81

My steps 2 and 3 basically coincide with Steve's alternative solution.

1. Basic techniques to UP = 29.
2. (6)h3 = (6-4)h8 = (4-8)f8 = (8)a8 - (8=476)a149 => c3, g1 <> 6
3. (1=6)f4 - (6)c6 = (6-1)c7 = (1)g7 => g6 <> 1 ; UP = 33 (Steve: yes, I consider this More...

Similar to rwm's, just for step 2 I used kraken cell:
2)Kraken cell (478)a4,=>g1<>3
(4)a4-(4=6)a1
||
(7)a4-(7=8)a9-a8=(8-4)f8=(4-6)h8=(6)h3
||
(8)a4-a8=(8 -4)f8=(4-6)h8=(6)h3

54:56 to you all from Portland, Oregon.

Took me a while, but this worked (forgive me, but I am still learning the notation):
UP 29.
messy chain implies c3<>6
then another long chain =>h5<>3,7. UP 33.
coloring => a8<>6, UP 81

...with Steve's observation about rwm's step 3, I was able to contrive a simple 3 step solution to yesterday's puzzle (no Kraken set or AAIC).

no need to nuke this one with Kraken sets!

For all interested, I have posted a solution to the Apr 10 2010 tough, a real monster involving several Almost AIC's. It does have a complex and interesting step (number 04) involving an "almost" continuous loop. Any comments on this, including proper terminology, or a better presentation of the logic, are welcome.

Looks like a nice time!

rwm: the whole concept of an 'almost continuous loop' boggles my mind - I will carefully ponder your step 4 and then reserve an appointment with my therapist!
